Feature film adaptation of Shakespeare's Scottish play about General Macbeth whose ambitious wife urges him to use wicked means in order to gain power of the throne over the sitting king, Duncan.
The directing and the photography are very good. The use of the color, the smoke and fog and the speed of the camera are very well chosen. Fassbender gives a very good performance, but it swallows everybody else in the movie. What I don't like that much of this version is that Lady Macbeth almost fades away. Her character is not as important as it should be and, in the end, everything is expected and everything becomes a bit boring.
